Another week, another one score loss for the Minnesota Vikings. The team had a chance to upset the returning Super Bowl champions, but couldn't quite get the job done in front of a somewhat hostile audience at U.S. Bank Stadium.

The final score was 20-27 and once again saw the Vikings be competitive against a team that took advantage of mistakes made by Minnesota and held on to secure the victory in the final minutes of the contest.

Very few fans or experts expected the Vikings to knock off Kansas City on Sunday, but the opportunities were there for the purple and gold to get their second win of the season. Despite that, Minnesota is now 1-4 and the season is looking rough.

What did we learn about the Minnesota Vikings in Week 5? How did the game against the Kansas City Chiefs show what this team has to offer for the rest of the season? Let's discuss the six biggest takeaways.
